Suspected Fulani herdsmen have reportedly hacked three policemen to death along the Ugbolu -Illah Road, in the Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State.

It was gathered that the incident occurred on Tuesday at the police checkpoint along the road.

A bricklayer, who did not want to be identified, said the three policemen were trying to stop a motorcycle rider carrying two men, who refused to stop.

He said, “One of the policemen fired at them. The motorcycle rider stopped and the three men moved towards the policemen.
